Gemilli ran second as a 44-1 longshot going a sixteenth shorter over this course Sept. 17 and was made the 8-5 choice to go one better this time. Close up to a dawdling early pace, the bay forged to the front with a furlong left to negotiate and drew off in the stretch to score by two lengths over Statue (Red Ransom). The $55,000 KEESEP yearling and $70,000 FTMMAY juvenile is a half to True Surpass (A.P. Indy), SP-Jpn, $807,425-Jpn. Gemilli is the third winner for her freshman sire (by Kingmambo).
